#artificialintelligence

In this article, I've compiled a list of the best machine learning courses available online. I built the ranking by following a well-defined methodology that you can find below. Machine learning is a subfield of artificial intelligence dedicated to the design of algorithms capable of learning from data. It has numerous applications, including business analytics, health informatics, financial forecasting, and self-driving cars. In 2022, machine learning skills are widely in-demand. On Microsoft's career page, 21% of the open developer positions currently mention "machine learning". According to the Future of Jobs Report published by the World Economic Forum, machine learning is expected to be one of the world's most in-demand skills through 2025. So I went through our catalog of over 50K courses to put together a preliminary selection. I did so by taking into account factors like reviews, ratings, enrollments, bookmarks, and more.


CLUE: Contextualised Unified Explainable Learning of User Engagement in Video Lectures

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Predicting contextualised engagement in videos is a long-standing problem that has been popularly attempted by exploiting the number of views or the associated likes using different computational methods. The recent decade has seen a boom in online learning resources, and during the pandemic, there has been an exponential rise of online teaching videos without much quality control. The quality of the content could be improved if the creators could get constructive feedback on their content. Employing an army of domain expert volunteers to provide feedback on the videos might not scale. As a result, there has been a steep rise in developing computational methods to predict a user engagement score that is indicative of some form of possible user engagement, i.e., to what level a user would tend to engage with the content. A drawback in current methods is that they model various features separately, in a cascaded approach, that is prone to error propagation. Besides, most of them do not provide crucial explanations on how the creator could improve their content. In this paper, we have proposed a new unified model, CLUE for the educational domain, which learns from the features extracted from freely available public online teaching videos and provides explainable feedback on the video along with a user engagement score. Given the complexity of the task, our unified framework employs different pre-trained models working together as an ensemble of classifiers. Our model exploits various multi-modal features to model the complexity of language, context agnostic information, textual emotion of the delivered content, animation, speaker's pitch and speech emotions. Under a transfer learning setup, the overall model, in the unified space, is fine-tuned for downstream applications.


Challenges of Artificial Intelligence -- From Machine Learning and Computer Vision to Emotional Intelligence

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a part of everyday conversation and our lives. It is considered as the new electricity that is revolutionizing the world. AI is heavily invested in both industry and academy. However, there is also a lot of hype in the current AI debate. AI based on so-called deep learning has achieved impressive results in many problems, but its limits are already visible. AI has been under research since the 1940s, and the industry has seen many ups and downs due to over-expectations and related disappointments that have followed. The purpose of this book is to give a realistic picture of AI, its history, its potential and limitations. We believe that AI is a helper, not a ruler of humans. We begin by describing what AI is and how it has evolved over the decades. After fundamentals, we explain the importance of massive data for the current mainstream of artificial intelligence. The most common representations for AI, methods, and machine learning are covered. In addition, the main application areas are introduced. Computer vision has been central to the development of AI. The book provides a general introduction to computer vision, and includes an exposure to the results and applications of our own research. Emotions are central to human intelligence, but little use has been made in AI. We present the basics of emotional intelligence and our own research on the topic. We discuss super-intelligence that transcends human understanding, explaining why such achievement seems impossible on the basis of present knowledge,and how AI could be improved. Finally, a summary is made of the current state of AI and what to do in the future. In the appendix, we look at the development of AI education, especially from the perspective of contents at our own university.


Programming Knowledge Tracing: A Comprehensive Dataset and A New Model

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

In this paper, we study knowledge tracing in the domain of programming education and make two important contributions. First, we harvest and publish so far the most comprehensive dataset, namely BePKT, which covers various online behaviors in an OJ system, including programming text problems, knowledge annotations, user-submitted code and system-logged events. Second, we propose a new model PDKT to exploit the enriched context for accurate student behavior prediction. More specifically, we construct a bipartite graph for programming problem embedding, and design an improved pre-training model PLCodeBERT for code embedding, as well as a double-sequence RNN model with exponential decay attention for effective feature fusion. Experimental results on the new dataset BePKT show that our proposed model establishes state-of-the-art performance in programming knowledge tracing. In addition, we verify that our code embedding strategy based on PLCodeBERT is complementary to existing knowledge tracing models to further enhance their accuracy. As a side product, PLCodeBERT also results in better performance in other programming-related tasks such as code clone detection.

Top Machine Learning Courses to Pursue

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning (ML), is the study of computer algorithms, that improve automatically through experience and by the use of data. It is seen as a part of artificial intelligence. Machine learning algorithms, build a model based on sample data, known as "training data", in order to make predictions or decisions without being explicitly programmed to do so. Machine learning algorithms are used in a wide variety of applications, such as in medicine, email filtering, speech recognition, and computer vision, where it is difficult or unfeasible to develop conventional algorithms to perform the needed tasks. In simple words, machine learning is a subset under the broad umbrella of artificial intelligence.

ML has applications in various fields. This review focuses on some of the fields and applications such as education, healthcare, network security, banking and finance, and social media. Within these fields, there are multiple unique challenges that exist. However, ML can provide solutions to these challenges, as well as create further research opportunities. Accordingly, this work surveys some of the challenges facing the aforementioned fields and presents some of the previous literature works that tackled them. Moreover, it suggests several research opportunities that benefit from the use of ML to address these challenges.


Empowering Things with Intelligence: A Survey of the Progress, Challenges, and Opportunities in Artificial Intelligence of Things

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

In the Internet of Things (IoT) era, billions of sensors and devices collect and process data from the environment, transmit them to cloud centers, and receive feedback via the internet for connectivity and perception. However, transmitting massive amounts of heterogeneous data, perceiving complex environments from these data, and then making smart decisions in a timely manner are difficult. Artificial intelligence (AI), especially deep learning, is now a proven success in various areas including computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing. AI introduced into the IoT heralds the era of artificial intelligence of things (AIoT). This paper presents a comprehensive survey on AIoT to show how AI can empower the IoT to make it faster, smarter, greener, and safer. Specifically, we briefly present the AIoT architecture in the context of cloud computing, fog computing, and edge computing. Then, we present progress in AI research for IoT from four perspectives: perceiving, learning, reasoning, and behaving. Next, we summarize some promising applications of AIoT that are likely to profoundly reshape our world. Finally, we highlight the challenges facing AIoT and some potential research opportunities.


Learn Python machine learning with these essential books and online courses

#artificialintelligence

Teaching yourself Python machine learning can be a daunting task if you don't know where to start. Fortunately, there are plenty of good introductory books and online courses that teach you the basics. It is the advanced books, however, that teach you the skills you need to decide which algorithm better solves a problem and which direction to take when tuning hyperparameters. A while ago, I was introduced to Machine Learning Algorithms, Second Edition by Giuseppe Bonaccorso, a book that almost falls into the latter category. While the title sounds like another introductory book on machine learning algorithms, the content is anything but.
